Domaine de l’Estuaire was conceived from the very beginning with the idea of respecting the environment.
Its owners, very much concerned with ecology and protecting nature, wanted to incorporate these criteria into all different phases of their activity, both the renovation and operation of the house. They are convinced that it is possible to offer a high-quality accommodation service while limiting our impact on the environment.
The Ecolabel, obtained at the accommodation opening in 2014, is the outcome and the recognition of this intention.
The European Ecolabel is an environment label which is given to products and services respecting stricts environmental rules all along their life.
And so, the Domaine de l’Estuaire makes a commitment to find alternative ways of allowing its guests to enjoy the quality environment and services here, with as small an ecological imprint as possible: we use a water tank, wood and sun heating, waste recycling, second hand furniture... everything is planned so that our guests leave behind only good memories, for themselves and for nature too.
Domaine de l’Estuaire’ owners make a commitment to advise their guests about the rich heritage of the region, to guide them towards nature activities, such as walking and observing local wildlife, and to introduce them to small ecological actions which are are easy to do at home.
Finally, food is a major part of Domaine de l’Estuaire environment policy.
The owners make a commitment to feed their guests in an ecologically responsible way, by choosing (where possible) vegetable and fruits from the garden, grown using organic methods. Other foods and wines are local and/or organic.
The Table d’Hôtes is vegetarian: respecting environment is respecting every kind of Life. This commitment means choosing plant proteins which reduces the natural ressources exploitation.
Domaine de l'Estuaire environment policy is also concerned with its guests security: it is forbidden to smoke inside the house, fire extinguishers and evacuation informations insure the security of everyone. Guests are invited to discover the security informations in the entrance hall and to alert the owners if they know about any danger like a fire.
Domaine de l'Estuaire guests are main contributers to the environment policy: their behaving about water and energy savings, sorting of waste and security, is determining to give sens to this environment policy.
